House robberies prompted by yearly sharing of stokvel money:
Orange farm police department (SAPS) had a radio interview where he advised the community of Vaal especially those who are involved in stokvels about the robberies surrounding the stokvels.
He mentioned that a chunk of money is kept by one of the members who later in the year just before dividends are shared; Such person was robbed inside the house by unknown criminals.
He further appealed that the awareness was made not to keep huge amounts of money in the house for the purpose of sharing it at a later stage. Such money must be kept at the bank most of the time to avoid any possible house robbery.
